Why is it so important for you to have a proper image of God?
God says so. God decided that you should know Him. God decided how you should get to know Him. God decided, that only through the Son, by faith, shall He be revealed. This world’s religions want God without Christ. There is no God without Christ.
Yet even when Jesus walked the earth, there were many that brushed against Him and sat with Him, and yet did not recognize the creator. It takes faith to see God. And God decided that Jesus would provide for you the image of God. The true image of God is best revealed through Christ.
Colossians 1:15 & 2:9
“Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:”
“For in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.”
Christ made Himself familiar to you, not that through knowing Him you would continue on the path of waywardness, but that through knowing Him you would choose to follow Him.
God allowed Himself to become familiar to you through Christ, knowing that you could not understand the infinite. But God reveals Himself to you in Christ so that ypou could know Him."
